Our Kittens!

We are very excited that you are interested in our kittens! We do our best to ensure high-quality kittens are placed for you and your family. Be assured that if you are not in need of a kitten who is prepared to become an Emotional Support Animal, you can still purchase from us. Our pet kittens are suited for any home and buying one from us assures we can continue breeding quality cats. It is a great way to purchase a doting kitten for your family and support our small cattery with big dreams. After all, every one of our kittens is an example of Living Hope.


Every kitten comes with a basic kitten pack. This pack includes a small bag of Instinct Original kitten food, a bag of your kitten's top three favorite toys, a framed 8x10 inch printed color photo of your kitten to hang in your house, a Living Hope t-shirt, and a clicker so you can keep up with their training if you choose (if you are receiving a trained kitten that is). Pet quality kittens come vaccinated and are required to be spayed/neutured by eight months of age. Trained kittens are up to date on their vaccines and are spayed/neutered before they leave our cattery. They also have a five-year genetic health guarantee, which you can find more information about if you read the contract below. 

We charge a non-refundable deposit to put one of our kittens on hold. This will count towards the total purchase price when you come to pick up your kitten. The fee just allows us to be sure the purchaser is serious about buying the kitten. We understand that purchasing a Maine Coon is exciting and you may want to check out many breeders before deciding on whom to purchase your kitten from. However, since I do plan to spend such much love and care on training each individual kitten, please be prepared to wait if you decide to purchase from us. We do more than the average Cattery and you can feel rest assured knowing we give our kitten unique experiences that you will not find elsewhere. We hope you will agree that our special kitties are worth the wait.

Our standard kittens are Maine Coon / Ragamese mixes. If you would like a purebred Maine Coon please include that information in your application or an inquiry email you send our way.



Pet kittens are the standard kittens that we recommend to be just a loving house pet in a loving home. These special kittens have been dropped out of our therapy kitten program and we do not meet our standards as an Emotional Support Animal. These kittens are still taught positive training methods by being used to being held, bathed, and having their teeth brushed, but perhaps will be a little bit more upset while it is happening. Typically these kittens may know a few basic commands but not all that I have intended, or do not meet the temperament I aspire for our therapy cats. Purchasing a comfort kitten is a great way to support our Cattery. If you are just looking for a great companion who will offer their lifelong friendship these kitten are for you.

Purebred Maine Coon Pet Kitten



Comfort kittens are kittens that have passed in our programs! Yay! You are on your way to owning a very well-trained kitten. These kittens are best suited to go to homes with people who intend to register them as Emotional Support Animals. Every kitten that is sold as a comfort kitten has demonstrated the ability to be told to get off, come, sit, lay down, and stay. These kittens are put in all types of situations to make sure they have a good temperament when being groomed, bathed, handled, and are used to traveling in a carrier. I do my best to make sure every therapy kitten has a good temperament. These kittens will make the perfect addition to your home! More information about specific training on home page.

Show Quality 

Occasionally we will have purebred Maine Coon show-quality kittens for sale. These kittens will get the basic training that all our kittens receive as well as some specific show training tricks. They will be used to long car rides and comfortable in their carrier. We will include the carrier they were trained to use in their purchase price so that you will have no problem with the long drive. Show quality kittens are used to being groomed, bathed, and will be used to having their teeth brushed. We do occasionally sell breeding rights. However, we ask to know more about your cattery and where you are planning to keep the cats to make sure they have ample space to grow. Anyone who buys a breeder from me can see me as their mentor. You will be able to call me and ask about any concerns you might have about breeding and the showing circuit.
